    Trotted out by President Obama to get the people who he largely screwed over (IE Most who voted for him) to think that maybe he had a change of heart.

    I don't buy this for a second.

      How many independents and moderates have you infected with your bitterness do you think - and how many do you plan to infect in the next few months?

        I watched the candidate I campaigned for tirelessly, donated to, knocked on doors for, donated to and put hundreds if not thousands of hours into promoting in one way or another tack immediately to the right as soon as he was elected.

        I am a member of the "professional left" that Obama derided, you know, one of the people who got him elected.

        Instead of the leader that America deserves, we got a politician that bailed out the banks, caved to republicans time after time and generally speaking proved to be less then the tough talking inspirational figure that the United States needed to confront the real issues that threaten to destroy not only America, but the world economy and our long term survival as a species.

        Not to say that Obama has not done admirable things while in office, but its not enough. We deserved better, we needed more.
